The Visual Editor uses a drag-and-drop interface to “construct” formulae. The Visual Editor is displayed in the image below.
In the image above, we see the sections of the Ninox Visual Code Editor. These sections are as follows:
A – The visual editor workspace. This is where the data fields, variables and operands are “dropped” to construct code
RED BOX – When the user clicks on this box, all fields in the current (active) table are displayed. These fields can be dragged onto the editor workspace where they are treated as parameters in Ninox formulae
B – When the user clicks on the “Calculate” box, all simple math and Trigonometric functions are presented. These functions may be dragged onto the editor where they are treated as operands that transform the field parameters included in the formulae
C – When the user clicks on the “Logic” box, the If/Then/Else logical construct as well as all construct modifiers and binomial states (Yes/No) are presented. These functions may be dragged onto the editor where they may modify the operational actions of the operands
D – When the user clicks on the “Text/Date” box, the chronological constructs and operands are presented. These functions may be dragged onto the editor where they assess and calculate time and data-sensitive information based on the data contained in the operands or provided as a result of the calcuolatory functions access in Section B above.
